Brilliant workshops and activities. Although there were many other schools on site that day the timetables were well worked out and everything ran smoothly. (July 2019 - Primary - Post No: 15099 )




Excellent workshop. Good planetarium show. More guidance around other exhibits would be good. (July 2019 - Secondary - Post No: 15089 )

Very amenable, knowledgeable and flexible staff - the workshops in particular were excellent and really enthused the children. We probably will not be visiting the gift shop next time we visit as we did not feel like we had enough time. (April 2019 - Primary - Post No: 10893 )

This was a fantastic days for opening the girl's eye to possible careers in STEM. They enjoyed the science facilities of the centre and challenging their understanding. They gained new knowledge in the planetarium. (March 2019 - Secondary - Post No: 10781 )

Workshops fabulous, planetarium - tailored to groups needs, exhibition awesome. (March 2019 - Primary - Post No: 10059 )




I believe the workshop should have had more resources so that the children per group was less. More time for children to improve their rockets on formation they had gained from other tests would have improved problem solving aspect. (March 2019 - Primary - Post No: 9859 )

The outcomes were meant by all pupils on trip. All were able to identify or link most of the exhibits to the use of forces. While most were able to understand the uses of forces in the real world. While some of the pupils were able to understand the effect of the forces on their activities. (January 2019 - Post No: 9091 )

The girls learnt a huge amount from our day. The centre itself was very busy but as they had organised a staggered timetable for each of the school groups, the girls were able to access the majority of the activities easily. (November 2018 - Primary - Post No: 7899 )

The planetarium was engaging and the children thoroughly enjoyed sitting back and watching the planets and stars go by. They learnt about different constellations and the stories behind them. They also learnt about stars and planets. The new explorer zone was very informative and gave the children a hands on experience which was space related. The rocket workshop which we booked was super as it made the children think about how rockets are boosted into space using a chemical reaction. They were also able to have a go at building rockets as groups. The whole trip was a pleasure, the theme of Space engaged the children as the trip reiterated their previous learning and extended their thinking further.

Engaging activities were available that the students enjoyed interacting with. The planetarium show was enjoyed by all students. They would highly recommend it to other students. (October 2018 - Secondary - Post No: 6762 )
